Description of event
“El Dragon Dorado” is the first official tournament organized by the Medieval Combat Team Draconem Clan (civil association in process). This tournament is authorizated of the Argentinian Federation of Medieval Combat (FACOM) and is an Oficial Tournament of HMB. It will be held on the 22nd and 23rd of July 2017. The event will take place in the City of Córdoba Capital, in Centro Deportivo Manuel Belgrano (Vélez Sarsfield street 2221), of the Agencia Córdoba Deportes.
Competitors representing many different teams from Argentina and Chile will attend the event. It consists of a 2-day-competition, the first day for group battles and the second day for duels in different categories which are detailed below.
The program includes these categories: Bohurt Feminine (3 vs 3), Bohurt Masculine (5 vs 5) and Triathlon Duels Masculine and Feminine (this category is subjected to changes, depending on the number of participants; it can be expanded into categories by weapons, according to the regulation of HMB 2016). Men’s Profight tournament will also take place (this category is subjected to changes, depending on the number of participants; it can be reduced to scheduled duels or expanded into categories by weight). The registration to these categories will be available until June 10th, 2017.
HMB and WMFC rules will be considered in this competition, and all the fights will take place on a quadrilateral of metallic fences with concrete floor in the open air.
This event is completely focused on the physical activity or sport. In order to carry out an efficient and careful management, we aim to inform not only to the participating teams but also to the community and the sports authorities about working methods in group and competition. We intend to create a positive experience so that this new sport can grow and be formalized as such.
This concept attempts to highlight the need to make the practice of medieval combat official, together with the support of the Sports authorities in the Province of Córdoba.
